Safety near gas pipelines

We have an area specialized in pipeline integrity management with the focus on people’s safety.
We have developed a Damage Prevention Program focused on raising awareness among the general population about the risks of working around the controlled area of a pipeline without authorization and without the presence of TGN.
Safety is our priority, that is why we apply national and international best practices.
Pipeline marker signs are located all along our pipeline system and on the surrounding area of the location of the pipeline. The signs alert the presence of a pipeline and contains the emergency contact number.
It is crucial to be conscious of the risk of working near a gas pipeline without the appropriate safety measures and supervision.
